One of the dogs I've been caring for this week is this gorgeous flat-coated retriever named Fern. High energy, huge heart, a little high-strung and quivery, wild to be free and moving. Sue and I took her to the largest dog park we could find, and it was still too small for her. She tore around it about two hundred times and could have gone on for hours. Fortunately her humans are fitness buffs who run, leap obstacles, bike, and hike through wilderness every chance they get. She will be glad to see them again.
Thanks for the moving comments on yesterday's post. I have had no time to respond but hope that will change.
